Change URL address on DLE

So I bought another address for the site from http://free-ebooks-4u.com to http://ebook-mecca.com I want to use everything I currently am .. the same DB and the same software. Just change the URL...I would like to know the steps to achieve this as fr as making the links and everything work, It would be very helpful to me if I know it would be as simple as changing a few files... Thank you! Added by: in Others on

    all files and images previously uploaded to your server will automatically using the domain name, so if you change new domain name without changing urls in database then all images and files will be using your old domain name, therefore, when you change domain name you must find and replace old url with new url otherwise all files will get you to old domain when click download and images will not be displayed since ll images urls will use old domain...got it? find and replace will only take less than 1 minute if you have articles less than 100,000 so it doesn't cause any server issues...
    1) change domain name in config.php
    2) find and replace old domain with new domain

    That's all you need

    Okay well I am uploading the site to the new domain name and I uploaded the database I had from a couple days ago, and I will change all the references in config. to the new site name.
    That should work :) Thank you

    This is an update as to where I am with a quick yes or no if I have to reinstall something,
    I am still uploading the files to the new domain. I guess by tomorrow I should be finished, I have configured all the links on the main page to the new address and things are working just fine saving me a ton of work. My question is

    Do I need to reinstall BulletEnergy 1.3 or where would I find the site config file in bullet energy to change the connecting address?

    basically yes you will need to find and replace your forum database URLs because dle find and replace will not find and replace in bullet energy forum database...so what you can do is login to phpmyadmin and export all database tables for bullet energy forum then open it with text editor like NotePad++ then find and replace the url then go back to phpmyadmin and drop all table for bullet energy then import the one to just modified then login to bullet energy forum admin and clear cache as well as rebuild forum information

    Thank you .. I did not have to since I used my old database and just worked on links.. It is all running fine in fact I would have to say better for some reason. Thank you for all your help and explanation, it has been of great value to me. :)
